The West, Texas Bass Club sponsors the Bohemian Open Bass Tournament on Lake Whitney each year. This year the tournament is set for May 19th. We have this message from Chris (via the Texas Fishing forum) regarding the tournament and a silent auction to be held to benefit the folks affected by the fertilizer plant explosion in West last week.

My name is Chris Nors and I am the president of the west bass club. We hold a large open tournament every year on Lake Whitney it is called the bohemian bass classic. We are holding a silent auction at the event which all proceeds will go to the families of effected club members or families of all effected. We are looking for a couple large items to put in the auction, maybe a guided fishing trip. It does not have to be anything special. Anything anyone can give will not be turned away. So everyone knows this is legitimate, my treasurer for the club is the VP for Point West Bank the bank taking all the cash donations currently.
